Characters Become Better
Yes this is true. The more you use a character
the better they become. You might not notice it
at first but over time they might become better.
For example Bowser's handling might become much
better over time.
Yes indeed, there is a secret character in Super
Circuit. Not the easiest to get, but it exists.
To get Waluigi, you have to beat the entire game.
That means beating every single race with a gold
cup (including specials and secret tracks) and
doing it with all cc's, 50cc and on. As I said,
not easy, but possible.
On the character select screen, if you push select before picking your character, you can
hear thier horn. Note: Each character has a different horn sound, so try them all!
Stupid, Pointless, Good For Nothing Fun
When selecting you character, press L or R and your character will shoot and
jump. You can't select a character before trying this or it wont work.
Driving Across A Stream
In Mario Kart Super Circuit in the level so
called Riverside Park after the first big turn
there is little dock. Go to that dock and there
will be anouther. try to get over the water in
between. You should save around eight seconds.
P.S. It takes lots of practice and do I mean
Choco Island 2(SNES): Near the beginning there is a break in the wall to your left use a mushroom to go through it.
Snow Land: On the third turn there is an opening in the wall. Try not to hit the wall.
Riverside Park: After you go off the ramp over the water about halfway through the turn there is some shallow water you can drive across on.
Mario Circuit 4(SNES): Near the end there is a break in the wall to your right. It works better to take this short cut witha mushroom.
Broken Pier: There is a place near the beginning on the left with no wall and there is an invisible bridge you can drive across on.
Change Title Screen 3
Get triple star ranking in 50cc, 100cc, and 150cc
in all the cups.
On any track press A and B at the same time then turn left or right (don't try it on ones that you can fall off the edge or you willfall off the edge) and you will start doing donuts.
If you have a green shell and someone is passing you, just bump in to them and they will explode.
Shoot Shell After Completing Race
Before you complete a race, grab a single shell
of any kind and hold it behind you by holding the
L button before and after you cross the finish
line. Any time after that you can let go of the L
button and watch yourself shoot the shell.
You can lay Spiny Shells behind you by holding L
and down. It will sit like a bomb and home on
someone when they come buy.
Rainbow Road Shortcuts
I think these are the funnest shortcuts in the
game. First: When your at the stretch that has
the bouncing stars, use a mushroom near the
beginning of that stretch going directly left.
Make sure you get enough speed and you probably
won't have to turn while in air. Second: Use the
stetch of "rippers" that looks like it is not
connected to the track to the left. Make sure you
don't bounce on the sides. As soon as you get on
the main track, make a hard right turn and still
turn some while in the air and you should be able
to land on another "ripper". Do not try this if
you do not get enough speed.
In the levels that you can fall off, push A about
halfway down the screen when Laikitu drops you
back on the track if you fall off. You will get a
Cheap Cheap Island Shortcut
After the fifth bridge if you look to your right,
you will see a small jump and two jumps in the
middle of the water straight ahead. Use a
mushroom straight on the jump and if you stay in
the line, you will be on the other side and have
skipped a substantial amount of the course.
Cheese Land Shortcut
At the first jump, use it to jump over the right
wall. It's a decent shortcut.
Don't think the coins are useless! Collect these
coins and you'll increase your top speed.If you
run out and hit a player you will spin out. They
will also add to your ranking at the end of a
cup. The amount of coins you receive at the
begginning depends on your spot in the lineup. If
you are in the back you will receive more coins,
Triple Green Shells
With these shells you can try to run into other
players, shoot obstacles, or the hardest, try to
shoot down others with them.
Crush Your Character
Get a fourth or worse OVERALL ranking. When the
ending movie comes up, the stand will fall on and
squash your character. It will then show the
character in it's window crying or throwing a
fit. It is quite hilarious and worth the trouble.
Cheese Land Mouse
Start the Cheese Land race in either eight place
or on a quick run. A mouse will walk over right
next to you and check you out before the start-
off. It's pretty funny.
Stop The Spinout
If you happen to hit a banana or other obstacle
that makes you spin out, press b right after you
hit it. It takes practise but is not hard to
master. You will hear a sound effect and see a
musical note above the character's head if your
Sky Garden Trick
After a couple of turns at the beginning there
will be a small item box that is only accessible
by a small jump. If you get a mushroom, use it
and go off that jump. You should land on the
track way ahead. I went from last to first!
If you want to screw up some people in front of
you instead of behind, hold L and push UP to
throw a banana way ahead of you.
Sometimes you may end up head on in front of a
wall or slowed down right in front of a crucial
jump. Press B and Down to go into reverse.
Shoot Red/Green Shells Behind You
No good racer in first place can win without this
hint! If you get a single green shell hold left
and down to shoot it behind you. This is the same
with the Red shell. It does not work for multiple
shells. If you are racing in a cup, and if you
get a red shell while your in first place, you
can shoot it behind you a couple seconds before
the finish line on the last lap. This probably
will mess up the character that is in second
place resulting in a lower score for him because
the red shell will home on him.
When you need to turn in an instant, press both "A" and the "B" buttons and the direction you want to turn. If you hold it long enough you'll do a 360!
Shoot A Green Shell At The Character Select Screen.
To do this pick a character but do not hit ok.
Then press the L button.
Jump At The Character Select Screen.
To do this pick a player but do not hit ok. Then

if ypu run into a wall where the brick disappears
after you run into it there will be a sign saying
that you can't see the ghost data. If you run into a
snowman(snow land)same thing will happen. And
finally if you run into a teepee in the sunset
wilds you won't be able to see the ghost data.
Double Star Ranking
To get a double star ranking on the mushroom cup
you have to get 170+ coins and 1st place obviously.
Same thing goes with the other cups, i think.
Just before performing a U-turn hit the jump
button and hold in the direction you would like
to go. This will make it easier to make those
